Post-graduate student receives honorary title
Graduate Kimberly Jones was named as the "Exceptional Teacher Candidate" by the statewide Quest for Quality program. Jones is a native of Sweetwater, TX, and graduated in December with a bachelor's degree in elementary education. Jones was picked out of 39 candidates that were selected from the 48 nominees who submitted to the program from 15 Texas universities.
The nominees are judged on the depth of their subject, the content, and their knowledge of instructional strategies. The nominees were also judged on excellence in planning and instructional delivery, as well as their achievement of goals and objectives with the use of strategies and resources that include technology, setting goals, making strategies, and using proper resources to meet the diverse needs of student needs.
Jones will be featured on the Quest for Quality website.
This marks the second straight year an ASU nominee has been designated an "Exceptional Teacher Candidate."
The Quest for Quality initiative, based in The Woodlands, was designed to highlight exceptional quality in university-based teacher preparation here in Texas. The Center for Research, Evaluation, and Advancement of Teacher Education and the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board collaborated on the program that was funded through a grant from the Sid W. Richardson Foundation to the College for All Texans Foundation.
